I feel like my past 5 posts have started with the same thing, making excuses for where I’ve been.
And you wanna know something?
There shouldn’t be excuses. I have time. Massive amounts of time. And you know what I do during that time?
A lot has happened in my life during July and August. I took a break for blogging and YouTube, I moved, and I made a whole bunch of crazy life changes.
If you’re new to my blog you’re probably a little bit confused. What is “Insert month Happiness”?
Every month I talk about a few think that have made my month great.
Because it’s important to reflect on what makes you happy and keeps you going. It’s essential for self love and all together happiness.
I’ve decided to start a new part on my blog capturing the adventures I go on creating art as a college student. My awesome roomie and new best friend models and two of her photographer friends came up for the weekend and let me tell you, it was a kick ass thing.
Dear An Abusive Ex,
I refused to let anyone touch me for six months after we ended things. I didn’t even let my mom hug me. I can tell you exactly when I was when I told my mom why I didn’t like to be hugged anymore.
I’ve recently started a series on my blog showcasing what made me happy for the month! So far I’ve done a post for May and April and I’m here today to bring you my post for June!
Starting in April I started a series on my blog where I post about what made me happy the previous month. This ending up leading to me branching out and creating on whole series on just being happy!
I’ve decided that at the beginning of every month I’m going to make a list of things that made me happy in the previous month. I did something similar on my YouTube channel when I was first starting out except it was my favorites of the month.
I hope doing this will help me remember happy things instead of reflecting on the bad. I also hope that it can help my readers think of happy events in their life too!
1. Celebration of Excellence
Every year at my school a staff member nominates one student for an award. Instead of based on academics or sports this award is for students with character, passion, and drive to do better. My art teacher nominated me and it truly made me happy.
2. My First Check From YouTube
I’ve had a YouTube channel for about two years. I’ve been feeling stuck because I feel like I’m not growing. But this month I received my first check from doing something on YouTube, something I love and am passionate about, and I’m truly happy.
I went to my senior prom. Even though I dislike school events it was fun getting ready and feeling beautiful, and I was truly happy.
4. College Orientation
I got my schedule for my first semester of college, met my roommate and was truly happy and excited.
5. My Boyfriend’s Birthday
My boyfriend turned 20! Unfortunately the day after his birthday he left for deployment but we still had fun. I made him open when letters and he loved them and seeing him happy makes me happy!
